FICA benefits from the expertise and collaboration of its member players’ associations. It operates in a number of different areas and offers a range of services to both its member players’ associations and the collective of players it represents.
“In an increasingly challenging landscape for cricket around the world, it is imperative that players are both well informed and consulted on all matters concerning our game. FICA bears the responsibility of acting as the collective voice of players, not only ensuring that their concerns are heard, but that decisions that shape the future of cricket are taken in the best interests of the global game.”
Vikram Solanki - President
“Cricket is a truly global game. As players we need a strong voice supporting us worldwide. FICA is that voice."
AB de Villiers
"As part of the FICA Player Advisory Committees, we want to make sure we play our role in ensuring players are collectively having their say on the future of the game.”
